It was a special season that came to an abrupt end for the 2019-20 edition of the Kentucky Women’s Basketball program.
The Wildcats produced the SEC Player of the Year, the SEC Sixth Woman of the Year, a top-20 national ranking throughout the season, and five graduating seniors. Kentucky finished with a record of 22-8 and was tied for third in the SEC Standings.
Unfortunately, those five seniors won’t have the chance to put the final stamp on their collegiate careers, as it was recently announced that winter sport athletes would not be granted another year of eligibility from the NCAA. The ‘Cats made it to the semifinals of the SEC Tournament and ESPN projected UK would have earned a six-seed had the NCAA Tournament not been canceled.
While fans won’t get to watch them finish the season in proper fashion, there are still 30 games worth of highlights to soak in; Jaida Roper’s 30 point-game in Rupp Arena, Rhyne Howard’s go-ahead game-winning shot against Cal, and an upset win over No. 6 ranked Mississippi State. Check them all out.
The Big Blue Nation fell in love with this team, and there is no wonder why.
